. >> that's right. we are on i-four. and so many republican votes and romney is concentrating. and polls show romney has an edge and the romney republican side of things things they are fairly safe here. earlier in kissimee mr. romney pointed out he will not go to virginia where he had had three events scheduled for tomorrow. the evening event was postponed last night and other two were cancel would. it is a critical state. but because of hurricane sandy, no virginia events for romney. this is how he let the crowd go in florida where it is not even raining now. >> i was looking forward to ande hurricane is headed up there and i spoke with governor mcdonald and we talked about that. he said you know, first responders really need to focus on the preparation for the storm. we'll go tho to ohio instead. cope the folk necessary virginia and new jersey and new york and on the coast in your minds and you know how tough the hurricanes can be and our hearts go out to them. interesting that they are applauding to go to ohio. the buck eye state will be pivotal. and early voting began in florida. it

, wisconsin has not gone for a republican since ronald reagan back in 1984. how much do you think that romney will be helped by the big organization that governor scott walker had to build to hold off the recall vote last june? >>guest: well, it is helpful. we have a strong ground game here and it is interesting that the most recent rasmussen poll was dead even 49 to 49 and those that have made up their mind or for sure will vote, governor romney got 51 percent versus president obama at 41 or 48. yesterday, the issue benghazi is bubbling up. people are demanding answers from the administration. that will have a big impact in the state of wisconsin. >>chris: we will get to benghazi later in the discussion. senator udall i was surprised to learn close to 80 percent of voters in your state will vote before election day and romney catch says they are winning in absentee requests and early voting and they say they are will swinging the suburbs around denver that went for obama four years ago. >>guest: good morning, chris. we have a great ground game here in colorado. you are right, about 80 percen
key swing states. republican problem portman who played president obama in romney's debate appropriation, 18 electoral votes if play in a state obama won in 2008 by 4.6 points and now leading by 2.3 points in the latest average of recent polls. republican ron johnson of wisconsin, ten electoral votes at state, obama won by 14 points last time and now leading by 2.3 percent. democrat mark warner, obama woman the 13 electoral votes by 16 points four years ago and now is tried and democrat part udall of colorado, obama won nine electoral votes by nine points and the race now is dead even. senator portman, the state most people think may decide the race and that is ohio, the obama camp says they have a big edge in early voting in your state and they also note they have 137 campaign offices around the country but the romney camp has only 39. >>guest: well, you mentioned first of all the real clear politics average in ohio being 2.3 percent in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9 percent. that is because the polls are closing. the latest poll was this morning in
-important ohio -- can romney win the white house without it? we're ask the state's republican governor, john kasich. and also joining us, wisconsin's republican governor, scott walker and colorado's democratic governor, john hickenlooper. analysis on what will tip the scales in this historically tight presidential race. from our roundtable, from msnbc, rachel maddow. "new york times" columnist, david brooks. "washington post" columnist, ej dionne. former ceo of hewlett-packard, now vice chair of the national republican senatorial committee, carly fiorina. and our political director and chief white house correspondent, chuck todd. >>> good morning, on this sunday, as if it weren't enough to have an incredibly tight race, we now have inclement weather that is bearing down on the east coast. hurricane sandy, a super storm as described this could affect more than 50 million people along the east coast. we've got all of this covered, including the political ramifications of the storm, in the coming days as we are just nine days to go until the election. i want to go live first to asbury park on t
for romney. a republican hasn't won your state since 1984. and in colorado, governor hickenlooper, look at our latest polling from nbc news and marist. 48-48. i know from talking to the obama campaign they think it's not that close. they think they have an edge, but they know it's tight. governor hickenlooper, you start, what's decisive? what tips the scales in your state and in this election? >> well, i think if you look at the mess that president obama inherited and i mean losing 800,000 jobs a month, month after month, the first few months of his presidency, he's turned it around, got 32 straight months of job creation, 5.2 million jobs. the national export initiative, in the first two years, exports were up 38%. i think people are going to hear that, and i think they're also going to recognize that governor romney's plan of adding $2 trillion to military spending and at the same time promising $5 trillion of tax cuts to largely skewed to the wealthier parts of the population without any specifics, right? i mean it's like trying to sell a pig in a poke. i mean, what are those deducti
by the congressional republicans earlier in year. for a new cabinet level secretary of business. romney slammed him on the stump for it, too. >> find something to suggest it will be better over the next fur years. we game up with an idea that he will create the department of business. i don't think adding a new chair in cabinet will help add millions of jobs on main street. >> the obama camp feigned shock at romney's disdain. >> this is an idea that republicans should have rushed to embrace when it was proposed on january 13. proposal for smaller, smarter, more efficient government. what is the thing that the republicans supported. >> new "associated press" poll shows by 10-point margin, more voters trust romney to break the stalemate in washington than president. >> how about four more years of gridlock in washington? >> no! >> governor romney's wife ann campaigning alone joining him tomorrow for the final stretch. >> women have been coming up to me and saying please help. women. women are saying we're hurting, all the voices of the americans are out there that need help. the only thing i can tell
in the campaign of republican presidential nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. romney seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills, and a general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. eric, jonathan, jonathan, why don't we go to you first. >> the problem we have had as an editorial board with mitt romney, it's encapsulated in that editorial. read it online and it will be in the paper tomorrow. >> www washingtonpost.com. >> where the problem with mitt romney is he says something on monday. it's something different by monday afternoon which is completely different or gone back to where he was on monday by tuesday. he won't tell us anything about his tax plans. we know he is going to reduce the rates by 20%. but at the debate he said let's just say $25,000. he pulls figures out of thin air. and he thinks he can be elected president of the united states. on vapor, really. >> yes, yes. >> and so it got under the skin of us on the board. we endorsed the president last week for reelection. it wasn't a sis boom
shock at romney's disdain. >> this is an idea that republicans should have rushed to embrace when it was proposed on january 13. proposal for smaller, smarter, more efficient government. what is the thing that the republicans supported. >> new "associated press" poll shows by 10-point margin, more voters trust romney to break the stalemate in washington than president. >> how about four more years of gridlock in washington? >> no! >> governor romney's wife ann campaigning alone joining him tomorrow for the final stretch. >> women have been coming up to me and saying please help. women. women are saying we're hurting, all the voices of the americans are out there that need help. the only thing i can tell them is help is on the way. >> three new races show tied in new hampshire where romney has vacation home, and wisconsin, paul ryan's home state and iowa where president leads by six. democrats warn it's closer than that. in colorado, romney has the edge. 50-47. within the rasmussen margin of error. even the ground game to get out the vote looks like a tossup. the latest pew researc
campaign on pause, but today, it was back to business on the trail. republican mitt romney argued that he would do a better job leading the country's economy. at his first step in wisconsin, president obama appealed for another term in office to finish the job he started. a short time ago, he was given the backing of new york's mayor michael bloomberg, who endorsed the president's citing specifically the issue of climate change. i ask the political reporter for the "washington post" what he would be watching out for. we're entering the portion of the campaign where i start to the people who run for president just have a different team than the rest of us -- different gene than the rest of us. >> there is no doubt about that, but this is an incredibly close election at this point. a lot of people predicted this a year ago, that it would be close, and they've got the election they anticipated. a handful of states will decide if the candid -- will decide it. candidates will be in and out of the state's multiple times. >> what can they actually do at this stage? barack obama, mitt romney, to
? >> well, it's a funny word that wasn't in anything romney said, that was republicans. that romney's party in congress triggered a near-debt ceiling default a year ago. and in an effort to work with them, president obama did give larger concessions on the debt ceiling than any president ever before in history. from that perspective, we actually bent over backwards. in terms of what i see happening going forward, if mitt romney is elected with an all-republican congress, if republicans do manage to take over the senate and hold the house, at least the latter one is likely, he would be able to work with them. if he had to work with a democratic senate, his relationship with harry reid i think is far to say is not great. conversely if barack obama is re-elected, he will have to work with speaker john boehner and very likely have a democratic senate. and what's fascinating about that and you've talked about it a lot, is is we do have a reverse situation in the last couple of years on our hands. he's got the leverage in the fiscal cliff. he can let this happen and republicans can decide if they
it. >> did romney have momentum or was that just republican spin? >> he did have momentum after the first debate -- >> we have had a three since then -- >> what obama was never able to recapture the lead. >> i cannot say with certainty that there was momentum, no momentum. i cannot tell. you look at the polls hour after hour and you get a sense that this thing is very tight, even when you go to some of the battle ground states. >> yes, the first debate made an enormous difference in the campaign. it allowed mitt romney to reintroduce himself with no opposition on the part of the president as the moderate massachusetts reasonable mitt. gone was the saber-rattling mitt, keep out the foreigners mitt, round up the suspects mitt and send them to practice -- [laughter] he became reasonable, intelligent, poised, forget the cayman islands and the swiss bank accounts. frank bruni of "the new york times" made a telling point -- the first debate was important because it may president obama in the next two debates more truculent than is ordinarily his norm, and he overcompensated for his mi
by indiana republican senate candidate richard mourdock, who has been endorsed by mitt romney. >> life is a gift from god, and even when life begins in that horrle situation of rape, is something that god intended to happen. >> that is the tea party's richard mourdock, who defeated veteran foreign policy expert richard lugar in the senatorial primary. the romney campaignuickly respded that the governor disagrees with those comments, they did not reflect his vie. the president has been losing ground to romney ang women. why is that? >> some of it is rebalancing, some of it is the effect of the first t debatei think. but i think that this kind of thing, as it snowballs along does have an effect, not because mr. mourdock said anything -- he was an artful. it was obvious what he was thinking. on the other hand, what he was thinking clearly is that rape is much less important than preserving a life, and for lot of women, saying that rape is not that important is a very unfortunate thing. romney has disagreed with them but he has not taken back the ad he is running for mouock. >> every time
are the republican tactics. you know, i'm amazed how much and how apparently confident mitt romney can be in projecting republican positions on to this president and accusing him of being responsible for everything the republicans want to do. it is just not the case. he knows that. republicans know that. but it is something that he seems to think he can spin to voters right now. >> i don't know if job numbers are going to motivate people to get out and vote, but certainly whoever the next president is, what kind of an economy, david, would you say that president would be inheriting? >> well, we still have a lot of work to do. it took 32 years or 28 years at least to do the damage that we're now cleaning up. and so there are a whole variety of policies we need. look at what happened in new york. the infrastructure, that's a lot of what i wrote about in my new book "the fine print," it is falling apart and they're artificially inflating profits. we have a lot of building to do, a lot of investing to do in america. and what -- now that we're winding down the wars, we should be able to do
of the romney campaign there? fort worth? caller: well, i see that the republicans handled their candidate, mitt romney, and i see that they're orkstrite, as far as all of his surrogates that have negative comments and responses by the republican party. host: we're going to leave it there. molly ball of "the atlantic," go ahead. guest: i don't think we should reach too much into the different form these campaigns have taken. part of the reason the republican national committee is handling the ground game for romney is that the republican primary took quite a while to decide. so they were able to build this organization back in march before romney was the nominee and try to catch up with the obama campaign that's been building this organization for six years. i do think the republicans are at a disadvantage because they've had less time, but if they had waited until romney sewed up the nomination around late april, or even until the convention when he officially received the nomination, they would have been at a much more severe disadvantage. these organizations take some time to build. host: nex
, in springfield, ohio when president obama said thiskr romney. listen. >> at the time the republican congress, senate candidate by the name of mitt romney -- no -- voting is the best revenge. >> reporter: voting is best revenge. his campaign was asked about that. they said what he was talking about is the best way to battle back against the illusion and delusion that mitt romney is putting out there but he did give romney a gift to put an ad. what is the president really talking about here? what does he want people to vote for? giving romney to contrast himself with the president. listen. >> yesterday the president said something you may have heard by now that i think surprised a lot of people, speaking to an audience, he said voting is the best revenge. he told his supporters, voting for revenge, vote for revenge? let me tell you what i would like to tell you. vote for love of country. >> we talk a lot about early voting here on the campaign trail and this election, it's particularly important in colorado where 50% of people have already cast their ballots. here is the way it's broken down.
key swing states. republican rob portman of ohio who played president obama in romney's debate prep. 18 electoral votes in play in a state obama won in '08 by 4.6 points and now leading by 2.3 points in the the latest realclearpolitics average of recent polls. republican ron johnson of wisconsin, ten electoral votes at stake. obama won by almost 14 points last time and now leading by 2.3. democrat mark warner of virginia. obama won its 13 elector aral votes by 6 points is four years ago but now tied with romney and democrat mark udall of colorado. obama won the nine electoral votes last time by nine points. the race there now dead even. senator portman let's start with the state that most people think may decide this race and that is ohio. the obama camp says they have a big edge in early voting in the state and also note that they have 137 campaign offices around the country while the romney camp has only 39. >> well, chris first of all, you mentioned the real clear poll techs average in ohio being 2.3% in president obama's favor. as of this morning it is 1.9% actually and that is
in there in that there are a number of issues that have come up in this campaign where romney's position, he articulated in republican primaries, the republican party platform is totally at odds of a wide majority of the public is. we've seen that, for instance, on protection with people with preconditioning conditions and not included in any proposal romney's put forward. when confronted with that, he denies it. same on immigration, platform is far to the right. in the debate, talking about arizona as a national model, he denied he said it. i do wonder if he's pressed on it, forced to answer on it, if he doesn't do that song and dance again, honestly, i i think it's worked fairly well for him in the last month playing the game that way. >> isn't it hard for him to deny it when we have footage of him saying it at one of the debates? i just played the footage. we do a great job here but i'm sure we're not the only show that has the foot aage. he can't put this on the republican platform. >> and mitt romney has shown a remarkable ability to etch-a-sketch. he can literally say on monday something the opposite of what he
? >> that the republicans want to outlaw contraception. >> did a democrat ever accuse romney -- >> quite a few. >> where? >> quite a few, chris. did you miss that debate when they were talking about -- when the church first came up that the republicans and romney -- >> having it provided in your insurance coverage. >> wanted to outlaw -- >> that's not -- >> well, you asked the question and i answered it. >> you can fight food stamps without fighting food. okay? >> those are the facts. >> it's the difference between -- >> those are the facts. >> it's the difference between saying you don't believe in food stamps and saying you don't believe in food. that's the difference we're talking about here. your thoughts? this other one about norm coleman running around in ohio saying this president if he gets elected isn't going to get rid of roe v. wade. he has sworn he will do it. he says it all the time. your thoughts? >> indeed. he's announced it's a personal goal of his to get rid of roe v. wade. i suppose he could rely on the dodge that he won't do that, it will be the supreme court justices he appoints who
to republicans they say absolutely we're going antoine it. there's a lot more enthusiasm for mitt romney than there's been before. who am i to believe? >> nobody. i think the one thing that is true about ohio is that it's atypical in the sense that the president is doing badly amongst white men and white working-class men in particular around the country. although romney has been eroding the slight advantage here in ohio with white working class men, what helps the president here is that bailout of the auto industry because that is helping him with his key demographics. so if it really in the end is about ohio and the 18 votes here, then it may be that something has distorted the race here and helped the president. but nobody yet really even dares to call it. the one thing that both sides are saying very clearly is that early voting is very important. a quarter of the state has already voted and half may have vote bid polling day itself. traditionally early voting is the democrats, but this time rms have been working very hard on -- republicans have been working very hard on it, too. >> laura
of republican president nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. rrm seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills and general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. >> yeah, again, if we put that revenge comment in its proper context, part of what that revenge is about is romney's violation of the public trust. when we look at these different things that have gone on in the campaign, it's very, very difficult to see mitt romney as an authentic campaigner or authentic politician. that's where you get the revenge piece. that's where the oped seems to be right on point. again, we look at a number of different issues. look at the adz playing in ohio right now. you look at that chrysler ad, you look at this desperate republican ad trying to convince black folk that the republican party are on their side. they speak down to voters and let voters understand the ways in which politics gets really, really messy at this stage of the game. >> it's not just the campaign, it's the character of the man. that's what
to be a cultural problem within the republican party. you can't lay this at the feet of mitt romney to be sure. there are a lot of women who are seeing this as fundamental disrespect for women, that is part of the republican party. how do you see it? >> first of all, talk about bad timing for mitt romney's endorsement. mourdock said a really bad thing and he apologized. and in other words, in that state there are two pro life candidates running, richard mourdock is clearly more extreme. and i agree, i think most people disagree with him. here's the reason why governor romney is gaining among women right now. he is gaining among women. and that's because women care about the economy. women care about the role of government. women care about their children's education. women care about their health care. and more women are living in poverty under this president than any other time in decades. that's why governor romney is winning with women. >> fair point. rachel, one of the things you're seeing, it was tina fey speaking in new york, seem to strike the chord about going beyond abortion, about do
came up? that the republicans and romney -- >> having it provided in your insurance coverage. >> well, you asked the question and i answered it. and that's -- >> you can fight food stamps without fighting food. okay? >> those are the facts, chris. >> ron, let me try it with you. >> it's the difference between saying you don't believe in food stamps and saying you don't believe in food. that's the difference we're talking about here. your thoughts, ron. this other one about norm coleman having been beaten in minnesota, that's running around in ohio is saying if he's elected he won't get rid of roe v. wade. he has sworn he will do it. he says it all the time. your thoughts? >> he's announced it's a personal goal of his to get rid of roe v. wade. i suppose he could rely on the dodge that he won't do that, it will be the supreme court justices he appoints who ultimately do that, but clearly that's the goal. does anybody in their right mind think that mitt romney isn't going to appoint two, maybe three, supreme court justices if he's elected and that those supreme court justices will have
is a very conservative republican. he is running as the constitution candidate because he thinks mitt romney and the republicans are too liberal on immigration and other issues. how many votes will begin? i don't have a clue. he shows up in polls at 1% or 2%, but people tend to respond to polls more favorably to third-party candidates than they act on election day and it is behavior on election day that matters. if virginia turns out to be 10,000 votes between romney and obama and virgil goode its 25,000 votes, you could make the argument he might have cost mitt romney the state. but otherwise i doubt it. and there is a liberal candidate, jill stein, the green party candidate. i doubt she gets a very much support. >> a few minutes left with our guest larry sabato -- host: a few minutes left for our guests larry sabato. hi, rose. caller: i am so glad to get on to talk with you. i have issues if i could take a little time. it is called the koch brothers issues. there was a national geographic documentary and i am quoting a lot of it, where they were born and raised in russia and they inherited
's getting the republicans so you want to look at the middle. 48% for governor romney. 46% for the president so a dead heat. both candidates are in the state today and will be back to make their case. because of ohio's diversity, what's the demographic composition. among nonwhite voters, he's getting 70% of the vote. cleveland, columbus, here in sena cincinnati. a growing latino population. the president starts with a head start. the white vote, 44% to 53% for romney. i would say this. if governor romney can keep the white vote closer to 40%, he has a chance and getting minority turnout, that was the president's recipe for success four years ago. >> i know that is so crucial when you look at ohio, what do you see there? >> the reason, it has -- you look at a couple of different places. the north of the state. cleveland, over to toledo. a place where we think we see evidence the auto bailout is helping. across the industrial north. that means a lot of blew collar white voters supporting the president. then you come here to the southwest corner of the state. cincinnati is in hamilton county. i
